What if there was one day when, for 24 hours, the world stopped killing? Is the idea of lasting world peace one day an impossible dream? Not for young Londoner, former sci-fi actor and filmmaker Jeremy Gilley. In 1998 he decided to get national leaders to commit to a cessation of hostilities for at least one designated day each year. He discovered that there already was an international "Peace Day" but its date was not fixed and very few knew of its existence. Its observance was ignored.

One of Australia's greatest photojournalists goes on a riveting first-hand journey through an Afghanistan never seen on the news. For almost 50 years, activist artist George Gittoes has stood on the frontlines of the world's most brutal conflicts and borne witness to the best and worst of humanity. Now living in Afghanistan's remote, Taliban-ruled Jalalabad province, Gittoes turns his attention to the lives of the children and outcasts of this war-torn land. He focuses on three gangs of children: the Ghostbusters, persecuted Kochi boys who hawk exorcisms of bad luck and demons; the Snow Monkeys, who sell ice-cream to support their families; and the Gangsters, a razor gang led by a nine-year-old antihero called Steel. With a deeply humane vision that won him the Sydney Peace Prize, Gittoes shows the unseen nature of Afghanistan's politics, culture and society, up close and startlingly personal.
